Happy Birthday Rocker Style

Tuesday, May 10, 2011

I made this card for a local swap I'm participating in using my fun new set from PTI, Boy Basics: Rock On.  Isn't that font so fabulous?  And the guitar, with the matching die?  Swoon. 

I die cut the guitar twice and thought the addition of the second die cut in just the cardstock made the guitar look a bit more realistic and gave it some depth.  Also, I haven't used conchos in a long time but thought the card needed some metal on it so I broke them out. 

Patterned Paper:  CTMH

Stamps:  PTI Boy Basics: Rock On
Other:  PTI die, CTMH conchos

Life is busy at the Moses household.  Lots of activities for the end of the school year in addition to the regular ones we have every week.  I guess I wouldn't know what to do with myself if life ever calmed down a bit.

Last night, we attended the awards night for this semester of karate.  Both kids earned their green-black belts and made good improvement in their skill set.  I am actually thinking of taking up karate this summer with them.  The dojo has a class for older students and adults.  I think I might enjoy it.  We'll see how brave I am.

My Mother's Day was good.  Devin and the kids got me a shirt and some necklace/earring sets.  We had my parents and friends over for a yummy dinner that night.

Alrighty then, I hope you have a great day!  Blessings to each of you.

Your rocker style card is awesome, Alanna! I love the colors.

Congratulations to your green belt kids, too. Taking up karate with them would be a great idea. I bet you would love it.

Happy to hear you had a nice Mother's Day. I did, too. Family is what it is all about.

I'm looking forward to "seeing" more of you - whenever you get the chance. Take care, friend.

Hey Alanna! Love this card that you sent for Joseph's Birthday! The card was perfect for him! He was excited about the gift card. I'm so bad about getting things in the mail---such a bad aunt, sister, sister-in-law. If I don't get something out soon, I guess I'll just wait until I see you guys in June. Sooo excited to see everyone!!!
